Re: Remote Prog.Problem

Choose source dtv or phono to put in your tv code and then the tv power button will work as well as the tv volume button if you use that.

How can I get my onkyo remote control (RC-693M) to control my Sony LCD tv?

Manual says: 1. While holding down the REMOTE MODE button for the mode in which you want to use the command, press the [ON] button. *** Hold both buttons down for 3-4 seconds *** 2. Press the button you want to learn the new command 3. Point the remote controllers at each other, about 2-6 inches apart, and then press and hold the button whose command you want to learn until the Remote indicator flashes. *** Hold them level with each other, 2-3 inches apart, and don't move them at ALL while you press the button on the old remote *** 4. To learn more commands, repeat steps 2 and 3. Press any REMOTE MODE button when you've finished. *** If the command was learned correctly, the remote indicator will flash *SLOWLY* twice - about a 1 second blink, and the red light will remain on. If the command was NOT learned correctly, it will blink twice *QUICKLY* - about .5 seconds, and the red light will go off. *** If the red light stays on, you're golden - keep going until you get to a button that flashes red quick and the light goes off. Some of the buttons I programmed took 6-7 tries in exactly the same position to learn.

I have tried all DirecTV codes on my Onkyo HT-RC270 remote control and none of them work. Please help!

If you still have the direct tv remote you can make the onkyo learn the codes from the direct tv remote via the Learning mode on the Onkyo Remote.Consult the onkyo remote user manual on how to do this step by step.This applies to remotes that have the learning feature,not all remotes have this feature,consult the manual to see if your remote has this feature.Good Luck

Cannot program dvd player. unit does not fully answer commands from remote.


To program the DVD player's remote control to operate your TV, follow these steps:
  1. Turn on the TV, and then aim the DVD player’s remote control at the TV.
  2. Press and hold the [TV Power] button on the DVD player's remote control.
  3. While holding the [TV Power] button, use the number buttons on the remote to enter the two digit code assigned to your brand of TV.
Note 1: If your DVD player's remote control can be programmed to operate a TV, the TV brand codes will be listed in your owner's manual. If you don't have your owner's manual available, click here to go to the download center and download a copy.
Note 2: Many TV brands have more than one code. If the first code does not work, try the next available code.
  1. If the TV turns off, the code worked correctly and your remote control is now programmed. If the TV stays on, repeat steps 1 through 3 with a different code listed for your brand of TV.
Note: If none of the codes listed allows your DVD player's remote to control your TV, then the remote is not compatible with your specific model.

Let us know if you want something more else please accept the suggestion.

Onkyo remote won't control Samsung components.

I got an Onkyo RC-717M remote control. It is the remote that comes with the Onkyo TX-SR706 receiver. It is a learning remote. When i entered the cde for the Samsung Blu-Ray it did the same thing as the other remotes I got from Onkyo, the pause, next / previous track buttons wouldn't work for the Samsung BD-P3600. I used the learning function of the new remote and programmed it to work. It works ok now but it sure was a hassle to get it done. In fairness i should have called Onkyo support but their support hours don't match my schedule.

Sharp LCD TV will not work with Uverse

Whichever device came with the remote will tell you how to program the remote in the manual if it is a universal remote. You can obtain a manual from their websites if you dont have one. I have a list of codes from my Comcast Cable Universal remote. Denon's are 1104 or 1360. Sharp tv are 0165 or 0093. These codes may or may not be the same, but you will still need a manual for the remote to learn how to program it. There so many different features with each individual piece of HI-FI that I still need all of the remotes anyway. The best advice for you is to just buy yourself a nice remote caddy\organizer. I have installed a little shelf next to my bed for all 7 of my remotes.

  2. Point the remote control at the device
  3. Press and hold the mode key (i.e. tv, dvd or aux) you want to program
  4. Without releasing the selected mode key, press and hold the OK key simultaneously
  5. Release both the mode key and the OK key -All the modes keys will flash twice indicating programming mode
  6. Enter 922 by pressing the number keys on the remote control -The selected mode key will flash twice indicating correct entry (for anything other than AUX go to step 7, for the AUX mode searching only, press and release the play key then press 1 for VCR 2 for Receiver/Tuner 3 for Amplifier or 4 for Home Theater In The Box (HTIB) - The AUX mode keys will flash twice indicating correct entry)
  7. Press and release the PLAY key, every time you do this, autoserach will try a different code, continue to do this until your device turns off. (if you weren't paying attention and you miss it, the REW key can be used to go back through the codes one at a time, and the ff key can be utilized to move forward through the codes one at a time.)
  8. To save the code press the ENTER key (below the number 9) then press the exit to return to normal operations. (the selected mode key should flash three times
